to the party, because as we've seen through fiscal cliff, debt ceiling and now sequester, they don't have to get anything done, even when they put the guillotine over their own necks to get something done, they still won't get anything done. is that why glenn beck doesn't like chris christie anymore? >> jonathan, krystal and nia-malicka, thank you. coming up the vice president loads both barrels. >>> first off, the chinese have hacked my blackberry. i can't open up any of my e-mails. they're sitting here being held hostage. i click on them and they don't open. oh, yeah, i could have put the back on first.
